Asparagus came into season and was cheap, so I ate it for every single meal last week.

Image
Lemon Tofu with Creamy Asparagus Sauce and Orzo with Roasted Zucchini from The 30 Minute Vegan's Taste of Europe. Tasty!

Image
Leek and Asparagus Curry from Local Bounty. Fantastic.

I also made the Jerk Asparagus to go with Mango BBQ Beans from AFR, but didn't take a photo since I've blogged about it before. It was a mightily good week. (Details on the blog.)

Thanks! Torque, asparagus beds do seem to take forever to come in, but once they do, you'll have asparagus for, like, forever! My parents have an asparagus bed that has been steadily producing asparagus for something like 25 years.

That all looks so good! I frikkin' love asparagus, so a week of asparagus sounds like a dream! I may have to follow your example. Plus, bonus freaking people out in public bathrooms.

Your food looks tasty too.

whenever we enjoy asparagus, it's just roasted & served with pinenuts or almonds. we really need to branch out. everything looks ridiculously good, allularpunk!

One full week of asparagus pee, plus a couple extra days for lunch leftovers. Pretty amazingly terrible.

I always feel so self-conscious peeing in public bathrooms after I've eaten asparagus. If I think my own asparagus pee smells bad, I assume it smells even worse to other people.
